The Browns signed offensive lineman Eric Kush, the team announced Thursday.
Kush, 29, last played in 15 games for the Chicago Bears in 2018. The interior lineman played 344 snaps last season, including starts in the first three games at left guard. A neck injury sidelined him in Week 4 and eventually relegated him to filling in along the interior when needed and playing special teams for a Bears team that won the NFC North.

Kush has a connection to Browns general manager John Dorsey, who selected him in the fifth round (170th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft when he was with the Kansas City Chiefs. Kush has also played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams, where he was featured during the 2016 edition of HBO's training camp documentary Hard Knocks.
For his career, Kush has played in a total of 33 games (12 starts).
